Radio Free Asia reported the warning came days before North Korea was set to showcase its military power during the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army on April 25. The U.S.-based radio station cited a Korean-Chinese man living in Pyongyang who said he had received a message from the embassy to leave. The Chinese embassy in North Korea, however, has yet to comment about the reported advisory. Tension between North Korea and United States escalated recently. On April 30 North Korea threatened to sink a U.S. submarine that had been deployed in South Korea waters.
